Being Alone, Children, and Fresh: Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Talks 'Black Panther' with Ryan Coogler: "If You're Black, You'll Leave With a Straighter Walk, a Gratitude For Your African Heritage, and a Superhero Whom Black Children Can Relate To" @balleralert Read more: www.balleralert.com Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Talks ‘Black Panther’ with Ryan Coogler: “If You're Black, You'll Leave With a Straighter Walk, a Gratitude For Your African Heritage, and a Superhero Whom Black Children Can Relate To” - blogged by: @ashleytearra ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ‘Black Panther’ isn’t just another film; it’s a moment of cultural celebration and appreciation, especially for the mainstream representation of blacks in Hollywood. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Here you have a traditional superhero film spearheaded by a predominantly black cast and Mr. RyanCoogler, a black man who not only directed, but also co-wrote it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ That alone speaks volumes, particularly in today’s pop culture climate. It’s innovating, refreshing, revolutionary, and even groundbreaking. This is a milestone for the culture. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The film—based on Marvel Comics’ fictional character of the same name, debuted on February 16th, breaking worldwide box office records and setting the table for national dialogue. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ One day before its release, Coogler sat down with retired NBA player KareemAbdulJabbar to share his views on why ‘Black Panther’ is such a big deal and why it could be beneficial for all races. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “The concept of an African story, with actors of African descent at the forefront—combined with the scale of modern franchise filmmaking, is something that hasn’t really been seen before,” Coogler told Abdul-Jabbar. “You feel like you’re getting the opportunity of seeing something fresh, being a part of something new—which I think all audiences want to experience, regardless of whether they are African descent or not.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Later in the Hollywood Reporter piece, Coogler detailed what he strives for viewers to gain from watching ‘Black Panther’. “I hope they take out of it a sense of enjoyment [but also] something that is not disposable,” he ......to read the rest log on to BallerAlert.com (clickable link on profile)

80s, Bless Up, and Clock: Meet Eddie, the Hospital Therapy Dog who is always carrying around his bookbag of toys and can always be found in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit @DrSmashlove Reddit u/Stuffy Unicorn Part 2 (see previous post for Part 1): He’d leap out of his truck wearing overalls and construction boots and a trucker cap - not Ed Hardy but a real one, an unironic one lol. And he look like Tom Brady in the face but he burly like Tom Hardy. And he got no shirt under the overalls just manly. And my girl like “Aren’t you cold?” And in a syrupy southern drawl he say “mayam - I werked one year as longshoreman in Alasker. One tam - my toes done froze off, lost two. But I survaved. An I don’t git cold no mowar. 🤠” He reach under the steering wheel, pop the hood, walk around, flicks it open, props it up with only his arm, grab wiper fluid out of the bed of his truck which also houses a deer he just shot, opens it with his mouth, pours the fluid, replaces the cap. I’m in awe. My girl even more in awe. He grab a blanket out of his truck and wrap up my girl and he like “just makin sure yer old lady’s warm, sir 😌. Would yall lak to come to my home for some deer steaks before continuing yer journey?” And I’m like “wow what a gracious offer u know what MSNBC and CNN are wrong about y’all, rednecks are amazing people” and just then. Right then. My girl hop out the whip. I’m like “WOMAN! IT’S SNOWING?” And she like “you don’t want steak then suit yourself I’M HUNGRY. We could have stopped at Ponderosa like I asked but you said we almost home WELL SMASH WE AIN’T.” And with that she retreat to the redneck’s truck. “But baby,” I said. “We got a nice home. Like the republican Family in Strangers things 😥.” “That might be true” she say “but money can’t buy happiness.” And just like that they ride off in the sunset. People always say “I was born in the wrong era.” BIH! NOT ME! In the 80s u could lose ya girl over wiper fluid! I’m not handy but I know how a Neapolitan suit should fit in the shoulder and how to tastefully appoint a living room with Eames chairs and Mies van der Rohe bench but still make it vibe with heirloom pieces like a grandfather clock! Bish I’m aesthetic asf! I was raised with sisters! And it’s ladies who, combined with my wondrous tung and pipe game, and my brand of earnest empathy, accept my type of manliness lol! Thank you God!! Bless up! 😂😂😂

Bless Up, Cars, and Driving: Was trying to sneak a photo when this pretty girl suddenly turned around and flashed me this big smile @DrSmashlove Reddit u/erisedwild So yesterday bruv I was driving and my windshield wiper fluid ran out. Bro I done told y’all before, I don’t know about cars. I’m good at a few very specific things. Being handy ain’t one of them. So after some momentary panic, I hit the market and buy some wiper fluid. Then I consulted my rock. My confidante. My soulmate: Google 😍. First I had to know where’s the button in my car to pop the hood. Googled 🤗. Then I had to figure out where is that stick that props up the hood! Googled 😁. Finally, “where do I put wiper fluid”. Googled that but this time the google assistant wanna pop up like “Look for the large plastic cap in the lower left hand corner. Also, our algorithm indicates that You Might Like: ‘how to freshen your Nani naturally with Organic Lavender 🌷’, ‘Kylie’s New Perfectly Pregnant Eye Shadow - Reviews and On-Skin Test!’ and ‘Cosmopolitan: 17 Ways to Blow his Mind in Bed!’” And by then I’m like “U KNOW WHAT GOOGLE ENUF OF U TODAY GOODBYE ASF 😂”. And that got me thinking 🤔. What happened before Google? In the 1980s, what if I pulled over and didn’t know how to fill my wiper fluid? Simple. I’d pull over. I’d fiddle with my hood for 45 minutes while my girl stay in the car, worried for her life. Then a nice redneck man would pull over in a pickup...

Af, Being Alone, and Ass: When you land at pleasant park and ya house aint got no guns and you already hear rockets and gunshots going off outside Fortnite done changed my life. I lost all hope for online gaming and a welcoming gaming community since Mw2. I was lost, alone, and had no squad. All my friends were dead and I felt the pain Lil Uzi was trying to portray in his music. I’m not gonna lie, I was not on the fortnite wave at first until i actually played it when I went over to my little cousin house. This is probably one of the most addicting games. More addicting then crack. They had to have sprinkle some crack into the servers. The first time I picked up a controller I was like “why the fuck is their the magic school bus dropping us off?” Then I see hella people sky diving out. Im like we about to mob on niggas, till i released how ruthless people online are. I use to just skydive as soon as the bus crossed over the map. I would be lumber jacking wood until some ruthless ass mother fucker pulls up with a Gold Scar, Maxed out shield and his homie quick scoping me from 90 meters out in a 5 story apartment complex. I have no chance with this cute little pix axe. I played squad mode with some random. I will never forget you Zelda Girl. She looked like she knew what she was doing so i followed her. Zelda Girl was thiccc af in her camo cargos working that axe for that wood. I seen shorty get sniped by a call of duty try hard from about 200 meters away. how a bitch from Tilted towers pop her from greasy grove? I went over to revive her and gave her my last Med Kid and Shield Juice. That Shield Lean comes in clutch down the stretch when fuck niqqas try to team up on you. I end up finishing the two enemies and I go over to salvage their materials. Just in the nick of Time the storm starts closing in on me. Trying to run from the storm is like dodging child support, you can’t. Once trap by the system it’s over for you. My health on about 14 when I look over to Zelda girl bonk ganging my ass. Storm closing in the bitch pulls out a launch pad and leaves my ass. These hoes not loyal. I died in the storm. Zelda girl if you reading this... bitch I miss you baby come back. I won’t die in the storm no more. I hate to see you go but I love to watch that ass leave 😘
